Kaspersky Bags Product of the year award

Kaspersky Lab has been awarded Product of the Year by the respected independent testing laboratory AV-Comparatives based on overall test results from the year 2011. The award is based on the findings of nine comparative tests of consumer antivirus solutions conducted over the year. Kaspersky Lab was awarded the highest grade, Advanced+, in all nine tests.

Experts at AV-Comparatives evaluated solutions on level of detection of malicious programs and effectiveness of heuristic algorithms, the number of false positives, resource usage, how well an infected system is treated, and effectiveness in real world user scenarios.

“This year, we decided to recognize all those products with excellent overall results by giving them the new AV-Comparatives Top Rated award. However, we still have only one Product of the Year. Kaspersky’s security products do not all depend on just one technology, but provide all-round protection using a wide range of different mechanisms, including heuristics, behavioral detection, cloud features, signatures, and others, without being over-dependent on individual components. Kaspersky Lab was the only vendor to receive the Advanced+ award in every single test conducted by AV-Comparatives in 2011, making it the clear winner of the Product of the Year award,” said Andreas Clementi, Chairman, AV-Comparatives.
